Add A Little Holiday Sparkle To Your Look: Gold

Hello Divas!!

The Christmas season is right around the corner and it gives the excuse to pile on the sparkle from your clothes, to your accessories to your makeup.

You don't have to look like a disco ball but you can add in a bit of sparkle and shimmer by just using one tip from the list below.

Metallic Sweater.
You can slip on one of these with a pair of black slacks to draw some attention to your face. The gold gives off a pretty shimmer on your face and makes you look better under all kinds of light.

Gold Wedges.
You ladies know how much I love my wedges!!!
These are classy enough to wear to a party or even dinner but they are OH so comfortable it feels like you are in flip flops or sneakers so your feet won't be killing you at the end of the day.

Gold manicure.

I could not resist posting more than one of these...I love the take on the candy cane in gold and white because it is refreshing!

On the other pun intended these gold and red nails are VERY festive add that extra punch to any outfit.
Get your sparkle on this Christmas 2012 and remember to wear a touch of gold to ring in prosperity in the new year.

My Favorite Moisturizer: Olay Regenerist Serum

Hello Divas!!!

The winter weather has set in and with it comes some quirky dryness associated with the heaters and all the dry air around.

While many beauty bloggers will tell you to upgrade to a thicker moisturizer for your face I think you can simply use this very light serum to keep your skin moist and dewy.

I absolutely love this light serum that you can wear under your makeup, under moisturizer or even just alone with nothing else over it. It dries to a slightly powdery consistency in my mind..which means you are not left shiny or greasy, but you do not have a white powdery look to your skin.

A little bit goes a LONG way so why not give it a try today?

False Eyelashes Made Easy

Hello Divas!!!

I know that some of you just LOVE your false eyelashes and cannot imagine leaving the house without them.

For the rest of us...falsies are a bit scary as the application with the glue is not very easy. To the rescue: Kiss Eyelashes with Applicator Strings.

Yes I know it sounds a bit strange ......and may bring up memories of tampons and their associated strings but I assure you this has nothing to do with that.

The eyelash strips come with handy applicator strings that help even the most challenged make up wearer to guide the lashes for a better fit.

All you do is apply the adhesive to the lash (you can't get away from that glue) and wait until the glue becomes tacky.

This usually takes about 1 minute so you can practice aligning your lash strips in the mean time. Then you hold on to the strings and gently place the strip along your lash line starting from the OUTER edge of the eye.

You work your way in and then tap the lash strip down in place. Once the lashes have fully dried you just tug on the strings and they pop right off!!!!

Pumpkin + Milk+ Honey = Great Skin

Hello Divas!!!

What can you do with all those leftover pumpkins and all that canned pumpkin? Well you may not know it but pumpkin is GREAT for your skin.

Mix the following:
1 tbs pumpkin (mashed)
1 tsp honey
0.5 tsp milk

mix well and apply to your clean face. Leave it on for 15 minutes and then rinse of with warm water. Honey is a great humectant and will plump and moisturize the skin.

The vitamins in the pumpkin will also help to exfoliate your skin in a gentle, non abrasive way and all around make your skin look even better.
